Event Details

McPherson With Quiet Neighbors CoverWe are so happy to announce that Catriona McPherson will be both seen and heard from during the discussion of this book: She is joining us by Skype!

In Quiet Neighbors, Catriona offers a classic bookstore mystery – which she stands on its head! An atmospheric suspense novel, it is yet another of her fine stand-alone novels.

It’s the oldest bookshop in a town full of bookshops; rambling and disordered, full of treasures if you look hard. Jude found one of the treasures when she visited last summer, the high point of a miserable vacation. Now, in the depths of winter, when she has to run away, Lowell’s chaotic bookshop in that backwater of a town is the safe place she runs to. 

Jude needs a bolt-hole; Lowell needs an assistant and, when an affordable rental is thrown in too, life begins to look up. The gravedigger’s cottage isn’t perfect for a woman alone but at least she has quiet neighbors. 

Quiet, but not silent. The long dead and the books they left behind both have tales to tell and the dusty rooms of the bookshop are not the haven they seem to be. Lowell’s past and Jude’s present are a dangerous cocktail of secrets and lies and someone is coming to light the taper that could destroy everything. ~Courtesy of Goodreads

Catriona is a multi-award winning author who will probably be nominated for even more awards for Quiet Neighbors. Don’t miss this chance to chat with a major star on the current mystery scene – and to hear her exquisite Scottish accent!
